Think that's the one my old mate Graham plays bass in. Will be seeing it in Liverpool.

First 'biggie' I saw in Nottm was Ray Charles, around 1962.

Through 60s I saw so many I've lost count.

Catfan. I saw Long John Baldry on one of the Boat Clubs. He was an early UK blues singer and worked with others including Alexis Korner's Blues Inc.

Seen him many times. An absolutely brilliant singer and a giant in the world of British Blues. The one in the early to mid 60's that every blues singer aspired to be.

Got many of his CD's too.

Me & a mate were returning from a day at Skeg on the train & I think it was ROT or Bingham where he boarded the same.

We had a brief chat & he said he was on his way to a club gig in Nottm.

Absolutely smashing bloke too.

Here you go Catfan.

One from the first LP I ever bought. Long John sang this and a couple of others on this classic album. The other vocals were by Cyril Davis who died shortly after from leukaemia.

Still the most technically proficient guitarist on the planet, although he does tend to drift off into his own little world at times.

Was definitely at his best when he had The Jeff Beck Group, with Rod & Ronnie.

You might've seen it, or missed it, but there was a programme about Jeff Beck on BBC4 last week.  It's still on iPlayer.

Admiring Jeff Beck's versatility, a couple of years ago he played a tribute show to Les Paul at the NY Iridium club. Imelda May sang the Mary Ford parts. Also on the bill were Darrel Higham and Brian Spritzer, (Stray Kats). A good old jazzy/rockabilly night. I think it's on YT.

 

Seen in Nottingham's theatres; Gene Vincent, Mark Knopfler, Shads, Tammy Wynette, Joe Brown, Cliff Richard, Marty Wilde, Everley Brothers.

Seen loads of artists, hundreds in 60s in all the fantastic venues we had in Nottingham, then since our return 14 years ago we’ve been to the Arena and RCH to see many artists that are still going plus a few of younger ones!

Likewise, Nottingham has always been great for music fans. The clubs of the 60's, various cinemas for the package tours. Pubs, parks , and of course Rock City.

I’ve never been to Rock City! Been in the building in the 70s, what was it called then? Heart of the Midlands or am I getting confused?
